The 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI on their way to the U.S. market

The 2018 Subaru WRX has been revealed and it got some new upgrades and of course it has been redesigned. The new version looks better than ever and has the most amazing features you’ve ever seen on a WRX model. Well, the thing is, with the old rival Mitsubishi Lancer Evo now gone there really is no direct competition for the WRX and that might result in Subaru getting a bit lazy with the new versions of the car. So, while the 2018 Subaru WRX and WRX STI do get revised headlights and grilles, there really isn’t anything that new about either. Not that we’re complaining, because the existing offer is solid enough.

The STI version of the new WRX comes with a proven turbocharged 305-hp boxer engine the output of which is governed in the 2018 model by a Driver Controlled Center Differential(DCCD) updated with a fully electronic control system to vary the front/rear torque distribution for quicker and smoother response. Other highlights include limited-slip helical front, Torsen rear differentials, Brembo performance braking system now with yellow-finished 6-piston front and 2-piston rear monoblock calipers along with larger, cross-drilled rotors, 19 inch wheels and Recaro seats.
